Holiday Desert and Boat Light Contest:

Join WYC members in a festive mood on the Friday before the Clear Lake Boat Parade.  Walk the harbor en masse to enjoy the decorated boats and

then relish a holiday dessert and drinks contest in the Waterford Harbor Marina ice house.  Prizes for the best decorated boats and best holiday treats.

Many members decorate their boats for participation in the Kemah Christmas Boat Parade, and some just decorate their boats because ’tis the season.

Afterwards we’ll meet at Pavilion B (or the ice house in the event the weather actually turns cold) for the dessert and drink contest.

It’s a lot to take in, but  make sure you sign up and plan to enter your best holiday dessert and/or drink into the contest. This one is always yummy.”

WYC Annual Chili Cookoff

On a cold Saturday night, the Waterford Ice House filled with the scent of peppers and the sound of a jovial crowd. The large crowd had a difficult job to perform, selecting winners from the large number of worthy entries. Winners were crowned in 3 divisions: Chili with Beans, Chili without Beans, and Chili with Alternative Ingredients. Gary and Tonie Hanson, once again, did an excellent job of hosting and MCing the night. The lucky winner in each division was presented with a gift certificate to Grazia Italian Kitchen and a colorful soup ladle to inspire them for next year. The weather cooperated by turning  cool and the WYC group certainly enjoyed the annual competition.
